What the Illuminati believe
The Illuminati’s doctrines consist of a mixture of Masonic secrets (Luciferic Doctrine), Islamic mysticism (Sufism), and Jesuit mental discipline (Hatha Yoga). Luciferian doctrine provides the basis for the two faces of the Illuminati, attempting to become “God” and the act of worshiping Lucifer. Outwardly the Illuminati attempted to present themselves as a self-perfecting society, but inwardly the Illuminati concentrate on elevating themselves to the highest position of control in a society. (1) The practitioners of Sufism believe themselves to be on a spiritual journey toward God and that it is possible to become close to God while one is alive. In Sufism, all of one’s consciousness: thoughts, feelings, perceptions, and sense of self, are gifts from God or manifestations of God. Essentially meaning that Sufis believe that they simultaneously strive to become God while God becomes them; or in the case of the Illuminati, Satan.
“It is far more important that men should strive to become Christs than that they should believe that Jesus was Christ…all men may reach the same Divine perfection.” – J.D. Buck, Mystic Masonry
The objective of the Illuminati is to enslave the whole world in a satanic plot for a one world government. Weishaupt created a plan for the Illuminati, which would give them ultimate world domination so they could impose Luciferian ideology throughout the human race. Weishaupt’s plan included the following four guidelines.
1. Monetary and sex bribery was to be used to obtain control of men already in high places in the various level of all governments and other fields of endeavor. Once influential persons had fallen for the lies, deceits, and temptations of the Illuminati, they were to be held in bondage by application of political and other forms of blackmail, threats of financial ruin, public exposure, and physical harm, even death to themselves and loved members of their families.
“No man is fit for our Order who is not a Brutus or a Catiline, and is not ready to go every length.” – Weishaupt (2)
2. The Illuminati who were on faculty of colleges and universities were to cultivate students possessing exceptional mental ability and who belonged to well-bred families with international leaning, and recommend them for special training in Internationalism. Such training was to be provided by granting scholarships, like the Rhodes scholarship, to those selected by the Illuminati. All such scholars were to be first persuaded and then convinced that men of special talent and brains had the right to rule those less gifted on the grounds that the masses do not know what is best for them physically, mentally, and spiritually.
“If a writer publishes anything that attracts notice, and it is in itself just, but does not accord with our plan, we must endeavour to win him over, or decry him.” – Weishaupt (2)
3. All influential people who were trapped to come under the control of the Illuminati, plus the students who had been specially educated and trained, were to be used as agents and placed behind the scenes of all governments as experts and specialists. They would advise the top executives to adopt policies which would, in the long run, serve the secret plans of the Illuminati’s one world conspiracy, and bring about the destruction of the governments and religions they were elected or appointed to serve.
4. They were to obtain absolute control of the press so that all news and information could be slanted to convince the masses that a one world government is the only solution to our many and varied problems. They were also to own and control all the national radio and TV channels.
Weishaupt’s objective was to be reached by dividing the masses of people into opposing camps in ever increasing numbers on political, social, economic, and other issues. The opposing sides were to be armed and incidents were to be provided that would cause humans to fight and weaken themselves, gradually destroying national governments and religious institutions. For this purpose, the Illuminati instigated multiple wars, beginning with the French Revolution. (3)
The Illuminati ultimately intended to rule the world through assassination, bribery, blackmail, the control of banks and other financial powers, the infiltration of governments, and by causing wars and revolutions to move their own people into higher positions in the political hierarchy. (4)
To join the Illuminati, a person must have exceeded the highest degrees (32 and 33) of Masonry, or be recruited. Lower degrees can be earned by hours of community service, such as establishing hospitals or helping the handicapped, which provides a good front for the Illuminati to the public. Members of the Illuminati have received “all the light” of Masonry and are thus illuminated.
